Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard

Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard It's no secret that these two have been in love for quite some time, but did you know that this couple is among the many celebrities who had secret weddings? Dax and Kristen vowed not to get married until gay marriage was legalized in California, so when DOMA was struck down, the two headed to the courthouse to get their marriage license. However, a court employee offered to marry them right then and there, costing the couple only $142 for their impromptu ceremony.


Kate Winslet and Ned Rocknroll

Kate Winslet and Ned Rocknroll You may have never heard of the actress's beau, but after two marriages, Winslet decided to get married in secret. The couple only invited a few friends, family, and her two children. Both sets of parents were allegedly not invited to the ceremony, but Leonardo DiCaprio gave the bride away. If only the real-life 'Titanic' couple were the ones getting married!


Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds

Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds The glamorous couple shocked everyone with a small wedding in South Carolina with Florence Welch of Florence and the Machine as the DJ, and Bette Midler as a surprise vocalist. Reynolds has allegedly loved the spot in South Carolina for quite some time and began to bring Blake there once they started dating. How romantic!


Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony

Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony Lopez and her then-hubby told their invited guests that they would be attending a backyard awards party (?) and surprised everyone with a wedding. This came just 6 months after JLo and Ben Affleck called off their engagement. The couple might have moved too fast, though, as they are now separated.


Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer

Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer No backwoods Louisiana wedding for this 'True Blood' couple. The pair had an intimate ceremony under a white tent at a beach-side villa at sunset. Quaint, lovely, and anything but vampiric.


Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green

Zooey Deschanel and Ben Gibbard

Zooey Deschanel and Ben Gibbard Did you even know that Zooey was dating someone? The couple married just outside Seattle, and the only giveaway that a ceremony was happening came from a tweet from Ben's Death Cab for Cutie bandmate, Chris Wella, who said "Wedding day!! So excited." Either Wella gave the couple away or the tweet was a planned scheme.


Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon After only 6 weeks of dating, the couple got hitched in Carey's estate in the Bahamas. The couple are still going strong with two twins, Moroccan and Monroe, so maybe the fast wedding wasn't a bad idea after all.


Jessica Alba and Cash Warren
